Christian Ponder has been having a great game at the Senior Bowl in Alabama, opening some eyes as he carves up the North defense. Ponder has easily been the best quarterback in the game, completing 7-13 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns. Not only does he have the most yardage through the air, but he’s the only quarterback with a passing touchdown thus far.
Hanging onto a seven-point lead, the South needed a touchdown to seal the game and Ponder delivered. On third and five, Ponder pumped once, then hit Jeremy Kerley down the seam for 23 yards and the touchdown. The throw and catch were the play of the day thus far, and left the analysts drooling over Ponder’s ability. The play capped a six play, 68 yard drive for the South, putting them back up 14 points.
Jake Locker is back in the game looking to narrow the gap in the waning moments of the Senior Bowl. With 2:30 to go, the South leads the North by 14, 24-10. For the latest from the game, check out our Senior Bowl StoryStream.
